A special time made perfect
We had the best few days of our lives at Merewood this week. The food was outstanding, as was the customer service, staff were simply amazing - nothing was too much trouble. Otto, was fantastic on the day, he has lovely people skills and also photography skills. We are thrilled with the photos he took for us and we will be forever grateful. Our families were as expected, shocked and nobody had guessed. They've all said how happy they are for us for finally getting around to tying the knot and think what we did was definitely the best way to get married. They thought the Merewood looked beautiful and could see why we chose to marry there. I know I keep saying it, but we had a very special time made perfect from all of yours and other staffs help and attitude. We've never came across such amazing staff at a hotel and made to feel so welcome and special. We will definitely be back for our anniversary next year - but might manage an autumn break before that.

Beyond anything I imagined
Firstly, the hotel and grounds and general feel of the place is superb! It was beyond anything myself and David imagined. We have stayed in several hotels and The Merewood by far is best, most personable and just truly spectacular we have ever come across. The staff, each and every member really take pride and enjoyment in their job, nothing was too much trouble. It was so clear you all wanted to make every person’s visit memorable. There wasn’t one member of staff whom I came across whom wasn’t fantastic! You are all such as asset and I think you should be paid millions of pounds! 😊 The setting/hotel, it just looked wonderful at all times, a real gem and one we will visit for years. The food ‘, every bit of food was something else, the menu choice, the presentation was all so thought out. The wedding meal was just excellent ‘, our family are all quite different in tastes, but everyone has raved about the food! Helen and the team on the day, you really made me feel so comfortable ( I actually forgot I wasn’t royalty and the bedroom wasn’t mine!) you allowed myself and our guests to completely relax, I really didn’t expect to feel so relaxed, but you did and it’s a memory I will have forever.

My daughter got married here on Saturday 23rd February 2019. Absolutely faultless. beautiful hotel, views breath-taking. the whole day was run by the wedding planner Helen and the amazing staff. Can't recommend it highly enough. All the stress and build up to the day was taken away from the minute we set foot inside the hotel. The staff are a credit to this hotel, each and every one of them.

A slice of luxury for a very affordable cost
We had a small, intimate wedding at Merewood and we all had an absolutely brilliant time and wouldn’t have changed a thing. Helen and the team made us feel relaxed and comfortable before and during the ceremony which was fab and despite the fact that there were other guests in the hotel, we felt as though we were the only people there. The afternoon tea was beautiful and we loved that you had packed up the leftovers for us - much enjoyed by all on the journey home! The meal in the Arboreal was absolutely phenomenal ... some of the best food we have ever had - we are all still talking about it. Congratulations to the team for their recent award win too ... we definitely agree it was well deserved 😀 All in all, the day was everything we wanted and much more. We felt we had first class hospitality in a beautiful hotel and location, we could not have asked more from the staff who helped us during our stay. Also, a special thanks to Helen for making all of this possible and for organising everything for us, it really was perfect. We really felt like we were getting a little slice of luxury for a very affordable cost. We will be planning on visiting again in the future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Merewood for weddings and holidays.

Going way above and beyond
This is an email to say thank you very much for all of your help and support leading up to our big day and for all of your hard work on the day. Many of our guests have said that they've not been to such a well-run wedding! Also thank you for going way above and beyond - allowing our cat to stay (he's doing much better now) and for providing jump leads the next morning! We really appreciate everything that you did and it helped make our day really very special. Thank you again

Best day of our lives
We got married at Merewood on 12/10/19, it was the best day of our lives. Communication in the run up to the wedding was first class. From the moment we walked in on Friday afternoon Helen, Lucy and the team looked after us, our family and friends like royalty for the full weekend. We had exclusive use of the house from Friday to Sunday, which was super special. The views from this venue are out of this world, it was like looking at a painting the morning of our wedding when I drew the curtains. We have received so many compliments from our guests about the amazing food, wonderful staff, spectacular views and charm of the house. It was the best decision we made booking Merewood, we just wish that we could do it all over again
